I have a database with several buttons...These buttons all are linked to other databases on my computer. I would like to find some kind of way to open all of the databases when I open the main database. This way I can make sure I did not forget any. Can anyone Help.

FileMaker Version: 6

Platform: Windows 2000

Create a script, I'll name it OpeningScript. In OpeningScript, use the "Open" step to open each file by clicking the Specify File.. and navigating to the file. It's a good practice to keep all the files in one directory (if possible).

In the preferences for the Document, check the "When Opening..." "Perform script" checbox and select OpeningScript from the popup menu. Voila!
